I expect some students to drop out of class unofficially, never to be seen again, but a couple of the better students from my ENG 101 at NKU haven't been showing up.

Today we started the Evaluation Paper with the old evaluate-a-potato-chip-using-concrete-standards exercise. It went okay but about a third of the class was missing.

Last time I did this exercise at Clermont, many of the young male students were too health conscious to sample the chips, even the one with a big "No Transfat" label. NKU students apparently aren't as squeamish.

When I was in ENG 101, the nutritional implications of potato chips wasn't my biggest worry. (Although maybe I'd be better off it if had been.)
